Toe by Toe is an easy to use resource for teaching reading. Hundreds of thousands of teachers, parents or friends have taught children and adults to read using Toe by Toe. No training is necessary as full instructions are included.

However, some people do not feel confident enough to start teaching.  Others simply want more information about the background to reading problems and why Toe by Toe is so successful at addressing them.  For this reason Keda Cowling arranges workshops and seminars throughout the UK and around the world.

We usually run public workshops in schools, and offer the hosting school free places, but we also hire venues like community centres where appropriate.  We also run private or public workshops and seminars for schools, colleges, dyslexia associations and learning support groups. 

We are always looking for new venues, and so if you know of a suitable school or community centre, please email us, or call Frank on 01274 588278.

“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your workshop.  Your presentation was excellent with very clear explanations.  I learned so much more than I thought I knew about how Toe by Toe really works.  Thank you.”
